We thoroughly enjoyed our meals at Provincial. Great menu, good wine list, good service. We could not fault a thing. The waiter was polite and knowledgeable and was always on hand. everything that was brought to our table was well presented, well cooked and delicious.

Mine Host Damir. provides excellent service. The food was exquisite, cooked to perfection and beautifully plated. The menu on offer is so good it takes a little while to decide what to order. I have eaten here a number of times and it is always excellent. Attractive décor inside and outdoor eating areas , great bar. Highly recommend.

This restaurant dished up the best meal we've had while on holiday in Australia. We partook of the Wednesday night Fillet steak and Shiraz promo for $69 a couple. The steak was cooked to our individual requests of blue and rare. It was tender, good temperature with lovely crispy vegetables. A very pleasant Barossa Shiraz to accompany the meal. Friendly...

We celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary here last night. The food was exquisite! My barramundi was cooked to perfection. Great prices for food and wine with an extensive selection of each. It was hard to decide what to order, so we'll definitely be back to try more dishes soon. Extensive gluten free options for fellow coeliacs. Extremely warm hospitality. A... More

Provincial is consistently the best on Tedder for the last couple of years. We have tried them all and it is great to have international quality dining readily available. We think that we are lucky to have a quality restaurant like Provincial on the Gold Coast. 1. Restaurant and Decor - The restaurant (and bar if you wish) are well... More

We have tried many of the tedder restaurants and Provincial would be one of the best. The menu is influenced as the restaurant name suggests from France and Italy. There is considerable choice of entrees and main meals that will suit most tastes. Mains start at low $20's. The wine list is comprehensive with reasonable choice by the glass as... More

Joined some friends there as recommended, and all started well really impressed with the menu and were looking to go back before we had even started. That's where it ended.
